Guardiola does not care about money, say Bayern

The Allianz Arena side do not hold any fears that the Spanish coach will move on in order to earn a bigger paycheck at another club

Bayern Munich board member Jan-Christian Dreesen believes money will not play a role in Pep Guardiola’s decision over a contract renewal with the Bundesliga champions.

The former Barcelona coach’s existing contract with Bayern runs until June 2016 and he has been linked with a move elsewhere once his current deal expires.

Bayern are in no rush to open talks over a new deal, though, with chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge revealing earlier this year that no negotiations have been scheduled until the end of the season, and Dreesen does not fear Guardiola will open talks with another club that could potentially offer bigger wages in the meantime.

“Pep is not the type of coach who is trying to make as much money as possible,” Dreesen told Sport Bild.

“He could already have made much more money elsewhere when he joined Bayern.”

Guardiola guided Bayern to the domestic double in his first season in charge, while they still have a shot at winning the treble this term.

The Allianz Arena side sit atop of the Bundesliga table, meet Bayer Leverkusen in the DFB Pokal quarter-finals on Wednesday.
